So I recently bought this 325Ci and it's making me miss my retrofitted RSX headlights quite a bit. :(

Here are some pictures of my crappy light output/crappy beam pattern with these Xenon lights. I tried adjusting it... but it still looks like balls. Additionally, when I adjusted the passenger headlight down (b/c it was pointed at the sky), it "hid" the bottom part of the angel eye.... wtf? Suggestions?

How much do OEM projector headlights cost? Am I better off just buying some aftermarket projectors? It's hard to find good concrete info in here :( If someone could link me to something helpful... that'd be very much appreciated.









And yes, this headlight needs to be reconditioned pretty badly

Try parking it 20 feet from the garage door or a wall. Adjust the lights so they hit three feet from the ground and a few feet outside of the center. It looks like the left headlight is pointed down while the other is pointed who knows where.

You don't have xenon lights.
that's what I thought when I saw them... but the guy said they were Xenon I thought... I'm just used to having the projectors I had in my RSX... lol

Apparently whoever had the lights apart before was lazy/stupid and didn't take the time to put the bulbs in correctly... you win Solidjake. Thanks!

I had THESE on my vert and they were phenomenal! I know they're Depos and all but they are nowhere near the kind that DDM Tuning sells. The kit I had were (supposedly) true E-Codes and delivered a sharp cut-off. They're not as perfect as the factory ones (where they could cost upwards of $300 for a pair USED!) but they are a lot better than some of the crappy lights floating around. I'm sure you'll be more satisfied with these than your HID in a halogen casing mod that you have on now. Hope this helps! ;)
